When you're alone, do you think of me?
And my diamond rings thrown out to sea
And when you love, do you love for me?
Like harmony, a never ending dream


Oh well, oh well
I still hope for the best
Say goodbye and send me off with a kiss farewell
And I promise I'll be just as strong as I can be
Maybe you could get some sleep tonight


So here's your song, it's twisting me
I'd give anything to make you scream
And I'll just smile and make believe I don't feel a thing
That doesn't work for me


Oh well, oh well
Guess I'll see you in hell
There's a pretty little picture that's in my head
And I'm starting to dream
Changing colors while I sleep
Maybe I'm just wasting time


Sit still and listen to the soundtrack
I'll tell you how I took one straight through the heart
And it's not easy to talk about
So we all scream loud

And that was it,
I had made it clean just across the street with my new wings
So I'll just fly and hope that I remember the good times when it's done


Oh well, oh well
I can't live with myself
As I'm climbing in your window to get to your bed
And I'll be what you need
You can call me anything
Just as long as we're still friends


Sit still and listen to the soundtrack
I'll tell you how I took one straight through the heart
And it's not easy to talk about
So we all sing


When she smiles, it's got nothing to do with me
I'm not the one who sings her to sleep
And I've been talking to God
Asking for just a little help with you
But it's hopeless


It's not the first time, but this one really carved it in
Tell your new friends that they don't know you like I do
It's over
I wanna see you again
I wanna feel it again

Oh, it's not the first time, but this one really carved it in
Tell your new friends that no one knows you like I do
It's over
I wanna see you again
I wanna feel it again


I'll keep you warm, safe in my arms
Till heaven calls, keep holding on

    Two people were friends and then they had more and then they broke up. He still wants her in his life and still loves her, but its not what she wants anymore. She has a new set of friends and he is left on the sidelines, loving someone who he can never have again.

    I think what he means by 'i want to feel it again' is that they once were more than just friends, and now they're back to being friends because it's what she wanted. He wants more, but she doesn't. He'll be there for her and he still loves her as more, but they'll never be.

    The first time i meet this girl, i never expect that i would fall in love with her soo much.. She became my friend, close friend until i find myself falling to her. I tried to stop this feeling but i can't help it. I tried to tell her but my words get tangled, until she told me that "you know that i love you, as friend. . . " it really hurts until now. I want to forget her but in the end i am still finding my self taking care of her. :(

    She broke his heart and he still loves her. This song is about how he tried to hate her and get over it, but he knew if anything he still wanted to be her friend. He realizes that being friends with someone you're in love with doesn't really work out. She loves someone else and he's trying to get her back.
